On June 26-27, 2012, the diocesan BEC directors coming from the different dioceses in Mindanao gathered at the St. Charles Borromeo Retreat House in Davao City. They were joined by Bishop George Rimando – the chairman of the CBCP-BEC committee – and Fr. Amado Picardal, CSsR (executive secretary).

This is the second meeting of the Mindanao BEC directors this year. The first one took place on February 14, 2012 in Cagayan de Oro – during the annual assembly of the Diocesan Clergy of Mindanao.

During the most recent gathering, the directors gave updates of the BEC program in their respective dioceses. They also came up with a proposal to have a Mindanao-wide BEC assembly which will be held on February 25-28, 2013 in Davao City. This proposal will be presented for approval of the Mindanao bishops during their meeting on July 6, 2012 before the CBCP Plenary Assembly.
